I then went and drove across the low level just to get a water crossing in! They closed it about 10 minutes later.

I have visited a lot but have never seen water in the Todd before.

Regards

Pete, in the Alice for work.

Not in that water!

I did get my feet wet walking around though.

I was interested that there was 6" of water over the low level and nothing running under the corssing at Stevens Road.

So I went down to watch what happened. It took over an hour for the water to get from the low level to there then within about 10 minutes it got to a depth where fording the river would be interesting in a 4WD.

The leading edge was scum with empty VB cartons and cans floating on it!

That was nothing! it only got cleaned out a few weeks ago when if flowed.
You should see it when we haven't had rain for a while....LOL
Go for a drive out to Wiggleys and the Junction while it is flowing......you might get some nice photos.

Cheers
